Let’s talk about weight loss

Comment: when talking about weightloss, the first image that comes to mind is sweating and the gym and counting calories. Yet, this approach to weight loss lacks the integrated mind-body approach that is needed for long term, sustainable weight loss and for keeping a healthy weight.

 

Finding out the causes of weight gain is the first step. Often there is an emotional connection with the food we eat and this emotional relationship starts early on in life.

 

Using a holistic approach investigating the mind-body connection can help achieve permanent results as you break negative thought patterns and vicious eating cycles.

 

Reframing thoughts about food and not considering food as the “enemy” are also important steps to take in redefining your relationship with food.

 

Changing behaviours around food can take time if they are ingrained over years of habits however using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy you can make good progress by applying the techniques suggested by your practitioner.

 

Getting help and finding support are the key tools to successful and sustainable weight loss.
